At Merivale Dental Group, we believe that prevention is better than the cure
Regular dental check-ups can ensure better oral health by reducing the need for restorative treatment. In addition, there are a number of preventive services and products that we can provide you with that may significantly reduce the risk of dental decay and gum disease. We try most of our dental products before recommending them to you – so you can be assured this is what your dentist uses.
We are also able to mail or courier these out to you for a small postage and packaging fee (this will depend on the size and weight of the item or items).

This is the “Ferrari” of electric toothbrushes and the number 1 recommended toothbrush by dentists… and there are plenty of reasons for that! The updated version includes a handy timer, travel-case and base. (models PC 1000, PC 3000, PC 5000)
We personally love these. Whether it’s the CrossAction PRO-HEALTH or the Colgate Slim Soft, you will love the feel and effectiveness of these manual toothbrushes. The toothbrushes also come in a variety of colours.
Oral B Floss
Ever wondered why you always get fillings between your teeth? Part of it is simply because your toothbrush can’t get there very effectively. Flossing provides a simple and effective way to remove plaque and food debris between teeth. The Satin Tape provides maximum comfort & resistance to shredding. (We stock Satin Tape, Ultrafloss, Superfloss and Glide Pro-Health)
Specially formulated for Valplast or flexible partial dentures. One spoonful of powder (1/4 sachet) makes 1 weeks supply ~ full instructions are included. Daily 15 minute soak to keep your appliance clean or safe for overnight soaking.
Colgate NeutraFluor 5000 Plus Toothpaste (Colgate)
Neutrafluor 5000 Plus is part of Colgate’s line-up of high fluoride oral health products. This toothpaste is often indicated for patients at a high risk of dental decay. This includes people with dry mouth, head and neck radiotherapy patients, or who have an increased rate of dental decay.
Listerine Total Care and Listerine Zero 1L
Listerine Total Care is a great mouthwash designed for long term use. It has a general antibacterial effect and also provides fluoride to help prevent tooth decay. Listerine Zero has zero alcohol content giving it a less intense flavour than Listerine Total Care.
Colgate Savacol Mouthwash
Savacol contains the powerful antiseptic and antimicrobial agent “Chlorhexidine”. This mouthwash is usually not used as a daily mouthwash but rather prescribed by your dentist for a short period, often during periodontal (gum) treatment.
Interdental Brushes (DentalPro or Tepe)
These brushes are extremely handy for people with large gaps between their teeth or who have difficulty removing plaque and food debris with floss. They also come in handy for cleaning under any porcelain bridges you may have in your mouth. These brushes come in a variety of sizes so talk to your dentist about which size is best for you.
Tooth Mousse (GC)
Tooth Mousse is a great addition to your oral home care products, especially if you suffer from an increased risk of dental decay. It is also very useful for people suffering from tooth wear, sensitivity, or mild fluorosis. Tooth Mousse can be used by all ages. There is a fluoride containing version, Tooth Mousse Plus that is recommended for ages 6+. Available in the following flavours: Mint, Strawberry, Vanilla, Melon or Tutti Fruiti.
Tooth Mousse Plus
Tooth Mousse Plus delivers all the minerals required to build fluoroapatite – calcium, phosphate and fluoride, making enamel stronger and more acid resistant. Tooth Mousse neutralises acid from plaque, from internal acid sources (e.g. reflux) and from external acid sources (e.g. acidic beverages) providing fast relief from cervical and post-bleaching sensitivity. Easy to apply and great tasting! Available in the following flavours: Mint, Strawberry and Vanilla.
Oral-B Pro-Health Mouthwash
Oral-B Pro-Health mouthwash is a very good long term use mouthwash designed to help keep your gums healthy and provide some fluoride to help strengthen your teeth.
Dry Mouth Gel (GC)
Dry mouth gels provide relief from dry mouth symptoms. They are especially useful for people suffering from drug-induced dry mouths, Sjogren’s syndrome and radiation treatment. The gel can be placed under dentures and also comes in a range of mouth-watering flavours!
